I opened the drawing in bobcad, and did a verify.

2 rectangles , the outside one is like 2mm bigger.
the inside one is a pocket.

basically, I am only taking like 2mm pocket in the Geometry, just to prove I can actually make it do anything,

Ok the issue was that I opened in V26, I just opened now in V25 and I get a pocket with the zig zag cut. However it is starting at the right hand end just as it is in Mach, see screenshot.

Sadly I only have V25 and V26 so cant look at it in V24 that you are using. Can you not select where you want the start point to be? certainly can in V25 and 26.

porbably can, but I am not wise in the way of bobCad yet. still learning.

I am sure I will find it. but its not the end of the world, if it doesnt.
